From the Publisher:
From an abdominal powerhouse comes the first in a series of comprehensive, targeted weight-trainng guides.Provides instructions on following a six-week program designed to help men integrate abdominal exercises into a workout either at home or at the gym, and suggests ways to build abdominal muscle for fitness or participation in sports.
Annotation:
Kurt Brungardt adds to his oeuvre of fitness manuals with the stylish, concise ESSENTIAL ABS, presenting a basic program of instructions for the reader with a specific goal: a "six-pack" abdomen. Though published by Men's Health magazine as part of a series of "peak conditioning" guides, ESSENTIAL ABS aims at the beginner, or at anyone who has never quite managed to get acclimated to a fitness routine. Brungardt offers a description of abdominal anatomy, proper technique for both optimum results and injury avoidance, and motivational tips. He also shares strategies for setting goals and planning the right individualized program. The directions for the program itself include nutritional advice, suggestions for cardiovascular health, and specific exercises in a progressive, week-by-week system. Brungardt also touches on ab-specific stretching and lower-back strength for a comprehensive program that the reader can add to a whole-body fitness program.
